for president of the united states. ladies and gentlemen, please welcome michele bachmann. [applause] ♪ >> good to see you. thank you so much. god bless you. what a wonderful morning. good morning. thank you for that warm introduction. it is always an honor and a thrill to be back at the values voters summit. i want to say a word about this concept you have heard about because the war on women, the so-called war on women. it has about as much reliability and truthfulness as bill clinton's arithmetic. [applause] this week, as we have seen, there is a real war that is going on across the world. that is what i want to take my few moments that we have to data this morning -- i sit on the intelligence committee. we deal with the nation's classified secrets and this is a real issue. as we survey the political landscape today, it seems like it is deja vu all over again. we are seeing attacks on our embassy in a way we saw in the late 1970's. you would think jimmy carter was back in the white house again, would you? we are desperate for another ronald reagan. this time, i am sorry to say, it is even wo
. >> the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content and message. but as i said yesterday, there is no justification, none at all, for responding to this video with violence. >> question, based on initial reports, can you deduce that tuesday's attacks were coordinated to coincide with the eleventh anniversary of our 9/11? pat buchanan? >> as it went into benghazi with rocket propelled grenades and guns and all of it, that was an orchestrated, organized attack maybe inside a really dramatic uprising. but john, what this shows is the total collapse or approaching collapse of the entire obama policy of looking on the arab spring as a great glorious opportunity, we have helped liberate the libyans the egyptians, yemen, and we find our embassies in these cases as of friday, under attack. what happened is when the arab spring came along it liberated a lot of fores, ethnic national liz im, antiamericannism, all these forces, john. and the united states of america, there is a real dichotomy between the two of us, how do you get along when you c
have been telling us that for months now they've been warning the united states about this growing extremist threat and that they have been growing ever more concerned about how little control they actually themselves have over the situation. >> arwa, please be careful over there in benghazi. we'll stay in close touch. arwa damon, one of our courageous journalists. the egyptian capital is tense, the u.s. embassy is tense. ben wedeman, what's going on now? are they out in tahrir square? >> at the moment it's gone relatively quiet. ta tahrir square looks normal, given it's 3:00 a.m.. in the streets below me, just a few protesters milling around. we haven't heard the bang of tear gas being fired by the security forces. this day could have been much worse in egypt. the muslim brotherhood had called for nationwide protests against this offensive youtube video that sparked this crisis, but at the last moment they cancelled those protests. so really we've seen a small protest outside the u.s. consulate in alexandria. here in cairo the numbers are down. it's important to keep in mind there
diplomates. including united states ambassador chris stevens in benghazi, libya, in what officials believe was a terrorist attack designed to coincide with the anniversary of september 11th. and joining us dan henninger, mary anastasia o'grady and, with the anti-american protests across the arab world this week, tell us about our standing in that part of the world, and the ferment in arabia? >> well, i think, paul, what's happening here is where essentially we came in when the arab spring began in egy egypt, tunisia and spread to other countries and the feeling at that time that came out the united states couldn't really support any of these movements in the arab spring because quote unquote, we don't know who these people are, which is to say that the united states, and including the state department, just was not that engaged with these countries at that time. now, when you think of how, to what extent egypt or libya since these transitions have been in the news, it's been basically not at all on their own, and still a piece with the obama administration's policy on foreign policy, to lo
. >> protesters rage against the united states and an inflammatory muslim film. an interview with al qaeda's leader. >> with only 52 days to go before the election. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >> violent protests across the muslim world this week, sparked by a low budget movie by a mystery film maker. the u.s. embassies found themselves under attack by outraged mobs and in some cases forces fired on mobs with deadly consequences and all of it caused a dramatic shift in the presidential campaign as foreign policy suddenly took center stage. ben wedeman is back in cairo. it seems that this weekend there seems to be a cooling of heads to a certain degree in egypt. is that what you're seeing, ben? >> certainly among the leaders of the muslim brotherhood and in the administration of the egyptian president, there is an attempt to calm down the situation rhetorically. and certainly we've seen in messages conveyed by leaders of the muslim brotherhood and the egyptian president, they're trying to send a
to take action against terrorist the plots. whether it confronts us here in the united states or abroad. in june of 2009, fbi directer acknowledged the challenge facing the bureau stating, "it is not sufficient for us as an organization to respond to a terrorist attack after it has occurred. it is important for us as an organization to develop the intelligence to anticipate the terrorist attack developing intelligence, developing facts. and the past we looked at collecting facts for the courtroom. we now have to think of ourselves as gathering facts painting a picture of a particular threat understanding the risk and moving to reduce that risk. and i couldn't agree more with the directer's statement. and then on november 5, 2009, a gunman walked in the soldier readiness center at fort hood, texas and shouted the jihaddic term. and opened fire on unarmed soldiers and civilians. he killed 13 and wounded 43 42 others. was the most horrific terrorist attack on the u.s. soil since 9/11. today we will exam the facts of the fort hood case as we know them to better understand how these facts
that seek to divide countries and cultures, the united states of america will never retreat from the world. >> four people have been arrested in libya what were on the scene of the attack, but the government says they are not linked to the murders. that investigation continues and we have a live report on that now. arwa damon is with me from benghazi tonight and i know you had a chance to go to the consulate there. what did you see? >> reporter: it was really quite chilling, horrifying to be walking through some of the buildings there just imagining what had transpired, taken place. they were all burnt. there was black soot covering the walls. ashes over some of the furniture, the chandeliers. there was debris all over the floor. looters also had moved in after the attack took place pillaging this compound that even after the assault was not really secured but one would have anticipated it to be so given how much evidence was on sight. in fact kitchen, there were bits of made to eat meals, various other cakes sort of strewn about. pieces of paper, one reading across it, libya is so importa
early for the united states government to condemn attacks on americans, and to defend our values. and the white house distanced itself last night from the the statement, saying it wasn't cleared by washington. and reflects the mixed signals they're sending to the world. >> the president also faced the media on wednesday. >> the united states condemns in the strongest terms its outrageous and shocking attacks and working with the government of libya to secure our diplomates and to increase our security at places around the world. >> an extremely abbreviated time line, the question for us here on news watch, how did the media react or fail to react to the news and the real issues surrounding these events. let's first go to fox news correspondent shannon bream for more. >> late tuesday, mitt romney released a statement calling the initial response to the attacks in egypt disgraceful saying they appeared to quote, sympathize with those who waged attacks and that original response came in the the form of an embassy statement which secretary of state hillary clinton had reportedly reje
in the foreign service, he won friends to the united states in far-flung places. he made those people's hopes his own. during the revolution in libya, he risked his life to help protect the libyan people from a tyrant. he gave his life helping them build a better country. people loved to work with him. as he rose through the ranks, they loved to work forehand. he was known not only for his courage, but for his smile. goofy, but contagious. for his sense of fun and that california cool. in the days since the attack, so many libyans, including the ambassador, who is with us today, have expressed their sorrow and solidarity. one young woman, her head covered and her eyes haunted with sadness, held up a handwritten sign that said "thugs and killers do not represent a benghazi or islam." the president of the palestinian authority, who worked closely with chris sent me a letter of remembering his energy and integrity and deploring "an act of ugly terror." many others from across the middle east and africa have offered similar sentiments. this has been a difficult week for the state department's and for
states has now asked a private entity in the united states to review a film that was put on youtube. so government is supposed to protect free. see instead, it's asking them to look at a video. what is next? if we give them the excuse that the video, we understand why you rioted and killed our ambassador and three others, because of a video, then what happens when something really serious happens? >> kimberly: it sounds like a justification, which is the problem to be honest with you. >> bob: there is no connection between the video and the terrorists. >> dana: that is what they're saying. >> bob: it's doing a somber ceremony. i don't know where you get the twitter -- did he go beand they casket? >> dana: no, the campaign did. >> greg: bob is saying these are separate incidents and the terrorist attack is not about the movie. they conflateed it. not us. they conflated it. i want to know where are all the freedom of speech celebrity filmmakers who were out there and defended the crucifixion in the glass of urine? do we remember that? somehow they're silent about this. >> kimberly: now we
not be photographed when those coffins got back to the united states. that change in policy under george w. bush was a source of anger and controversy. it is why coffins were sometimes used in anti-iraq war protests to visually represent those real caskets of americans killed in the war that the bush administration would not allow the country to see. the bush administration banned the media from showing those dignified transfer ceremonies as the invasion of iraq started in 2003. and they kept the policy in place throughout george w. bush's time in office. as the country waged two of the longest wars in our history. it was not until the new president replaced george w. bush that the ban was rescinded. on thursday, february 26th, 2009, just five weeks after president barack obama was inaugurated, the defense department lifted the ban and one week after the ban was lifted, the following thursday, the media was allowed to cover that solemn return ceremony for the first time in a long time. and maybe it is because we did go so long as a country without seeing images like this that we are a little roc

not to united states policy for the administration, not the american people. it is in response to a video. lou: the romney campaign called the reaction to the violence in the middle east amateur hour. we are taking all of that up tonight with the author of "the new york times" book, the amateur. bin laden unit chief, michael carrier. and christopher hahn and jedediah bila joins us as well. my next guest says protest demonstrations and murders is the latest episode, he says, in the process by which the united states is being driven from the arab world. joining us now is head of the bin laden tracking unit, michael. good to have you with us. it is a peculiar moment to say the least. to hear the spokesman for the presidency but this is about a movie and has nothing to do with u.s. policies or this administration. what is your reaction? >> well, the country is out of control. it is out of control economically, but in the middle east, we have been out of control for 15 years. we have not had an enemy in the middle east or anywhere in the world that has been so clear about what motivates them since
it in the united states, at least, after the protests started. >> but i understand that the government, that the muslim brotherhood government basically knew about this video and it was a big topic of conversation in cairo. >> it certainly was a topic of conversation in the days leading up to the protest there were ultra conservative parties calling for the protests and the united states embassy as well knew the protest was coming and told its staff to go home early that day. >> i think logical thinkers know that this was that this was a call drop of hatred you don't stand by and let this happen. the muslim brotherhood did that but they called for a big big million man march today which they then said don't do it after president obama read morsi the riot act on the telephone. i guess that's what happened, right? >> well, it's fascinating to watch the muslim brotherhood adapt to leadership and adapt to something more than being in opposition party which it was for so long. they are trying to play to their very conservative base here in cairo and egypt while presenting a friendlier face
the truth. >> reporter: the question is whether the united states underestimated the threat from hostile groups here. one security libyan official told me he met with officials three days before the attack took place. he says he warned them not for the first time that security in benghazi was deteriorating. he said, "we told the americans the situation was frightening. it scares us." the ambassador, too, seems to be aware of the general threat from islamist militants, but no one anticipated the terrible violence that would take his life and the life of three other americans on tuesday night. arwa damon, cnn, benghazi, libya. >>> we have also seen several days of mass protests and demonstrations in egypt, but egyptian security forces there have cracked down arresting more than 140,000 protesters. let's bring in ian lee. half the protests there let up in the capital? >> well, randi, it seems to be over now. earlier this morning the police with the heavy, heavy presence pushed the protesters away from the u.s. embassy, forcing them to tahrir square and from there they pushed them out of the
got worse for the united states overseas today as anti-u.s. protests over the film that denigrates the prophet, muhammed, spread to nearly 20 countries now. the violence has erupted in what is really the cradle of the arab spring in cairo, where the ambassador was stormed. benghazi, the attack that killed four americans, including the first ambassador to die in decades. this was a somber day at andrew's air force base as the four americans came home, as the leaders of their government looked on. it is where we begin our coverage tonight with nbc's andrea mitchell. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> reporter: to the mournful tones of "nearer my god to thee," the caskets came home, four public servants, arriving to the embrace of family and the secretary of state, brought together in grief. >> today, we bring home four americans who gave their lives for our country, and our values. >> reporter: four americans, the president said, who knew the danger and accepted it. they didn't simply embrace the american ideal, they lived it. >> glenn dougherty never shied from adventure, he believed in his life he
people. because the senate bill was inclusive and every woman member , republican, of the united states senate voted for it. everyone. that was the difference between the two bills. those who were included and a more specific group that are now included, which we think they ought to be, but we also think there aren't people include who had need to be. with all due respect i think my characterization was absolutely accurate. but it's interesting, mr. speaker, that we still haven't eabed the question -- answered the question. we tend to want to talk about other things. 98% of americans should not get a tax increase on january 1 that are making less than $250,000 individually as a family. i think we agree on that. mr. speaker, now i haven't heard that we don't agree on that but we agree on that which means there are 2% on which we do not agree. and that bill has not been brought to the floor that passed the united states senate dealing with that 98%. or 97% of small business. now, mr. speaker, it seems to me if we have agreement on 98% and the president of the united states will sign that
is in the country, although there is a lot of graffiti outside the united states embassy, spray-painted by a number of protesters, including one that says, quote, take care, america. we have 1.5 billion bin ladens. they are chanting, our soul, our blood for the prophet muhammad. the big difference from what we saw 18 months ago in the revolution, was that back then, people were talking about freedom and democracy and how much they loved america. now they are talking about how angry they are at america and chanting "death to america." sean, back to you. >> sean: thanks for that report. as anti-american protests spread, this administration is trying to deflect blame for its failed policies and trying to peg all of this violence on a youtube video. i know, believe it or not. watch this. >> this is a fairly volatile situation. and it is in response, not to the united states' policy, want to -- obviously the administration, not to the american people. it is in response to a video, a film... that we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting. that in no way justifies any violent reaction to it. but t
, that the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. to us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. it appears to have a deeply cynical purpose, to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage. >> the film was initially to have thought to have provoked the attack on benghazi, libya, tuesday. ambassador chris stevens, former navy s.e.a.l.s chris woods and glen doherty were killed in that attack along with sean smith. not long after the attack reports surfaced that it might have been the premeditated work of a radical islamic group retaliating for an american drone strike which had killed an al qaeda command leader. libyan officials said they had taken four men into custody in connection with the attack. they also said they thought the attack was meant to drive a wedge between americans and libyans. this may be true. but even with all that has happened in libya, the bigger challenge for the obama administration may be with what's taking place in egypt. where even before the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya protestors stormed the emba
